Quintet for piano, violin, viola, cello and bass by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich was premièred at an Arizona Friends of Chamber Music performance in 2012. Composing for the same instrumentation as Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet, Zwilich notes that she “couldn’t resist using a very small quote from the Schubert song on which his quintet is based.” Other pieces on the program by Hans Fryba and Paul Ramsier show how older music inspires new.
